    Thanks to Rob 85K5, I will be going to the junk yard hunting for a new steering wheel for my 87'. He mentioned that some cavalier steering wheels bolt right up. I am wondering if any one knows of any cool steering wheels that will bolt right up. If so please let me know what kinda car it is thanks.. A hunting we will go..

    I've got the late model stearing wheel in my 89. Love it. Another one that I really like was in my parents 86 Astro Van. It had a solid metal piece that ran below the horn. Pretty sharp. Problem is, I could never find another one in a wrecked truck. I think they came in S-10 Blazers too.

    Yeah, I came off the $100 and got a Grant. I love it very much. Never have gotten the horn to work though, so I have to rev my motor in place of a horn. Works better, people move FAST.

    Mid 70's Z-28 or basic Camaro steering wheel is also a drop in, nice wheels too. Usually around $20 at a boneyard.

    Any GM fullsize truck from atlease 68 uses the same spline and as long as it doens't have an air bag it will bolt right up. I drove a buds truck that had a smaller wheel like that on a camaro and didn't like the smaller size. Personal I'm torn between the grants in a 14 inch or finding a late model GM truck wheel.
